William Engdahl has published an in-depth article about the Rockerfellers’ agribusiness revolution and the devastating impact it has had on our health, our food and the lives of farmers worldwide. Read it at journal-neo.org.
Here’s an interview he did for Red Ice Radio (doesn’t cover everything in the article):
Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights, has uncovered serious abuses of Baka “Pygmies” in southeast Cameroon, at the hands of anti-poaching squads supported and funded by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
The WWF raises money across the globe to save the orangutan. The organization does, in fact, act to preserve existing national parks that are home to the likeable, funny-faced apes. But at the same time, the WWF – a strong proponent of plant-based energy production worldwide – is aiding its agribusiness partners in annihilating much larger areas of rainforest in the name of sustainability.
A years’-long globe-spanning investigative journey took journalist and filmmaker Wilfried Huismann to the Indonesian part of Borneo. There he discovered that in Central Kalimantan alone the company Wilmar International, one of the world’s biggest palm oil players, had already cleared almost 200,000 hectares of rainforest using ruthless slash-and-burn methods. In 2007 the WWF concluded a “Memorandum of Understanding” with Wilmar, pledging support for the company’s Central Kalimantan palm oil operations, which the WWF deems “sustainable”.

Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government.
According to a statement released Tuesday by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, the organization has found an antigen that causes miscarriages in a vaccine being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Priests throughout Kenya reportedly are advising their congregations to refuse the vaccine.
And an article from greenmed.info goes deeper, examines how mainstream media are largely ignoring it while the few who are not are generally dismissing it as nonsense (without any evidence to back up the claim) and then looks into the long and scandalous historical background of vaccine experiments on humans in places like Africa.

The World Wide Fund for Nature has been the subject of much controversy since its inception. Now a new English translation of a book by German author Wilfried Huismann, PandaLeaks – The Dark Side of the WWF, presents two years of on-the-ground investigative research, exposing their unethical and hypocritical tactics to a much greater depth than before. The book has been published in spite of a massive campaign of threats and a series of lawsuits from its subject.
The book accuses WWF of cosying up to the very corporations it should be challenging, such as Monsanto, Coca-Cola, Shell, HSBC, Cargill, BP, Alcoa and Maine Harvest. The Author says that “WWF is a willing service provider to the giants of the food and energy sectors, supplying industry with a green, progressive image… On the one hand it protects the forest; on the other it helps corporations lay claim to land not previously in their grasp. WWF helps sell the idea of voluntary resettlement to indigenous peoples,”
“It is commonly heard today that small farmers produce most of the world’s food. But how many of us realise that they are doing this with less than a quarter of the world’s farmland, and that even this meagre share is shrinking fast? If small farmers continue to lose the very basis of their existence, the world will lose its capacity to feed itself.
“GRAIN took an in depth look at the data to see what is going on and the message is crystal clear. We need to urgently put land back in the hands of small farmers and make the struggle for agrarian reform central to the fight for better food systems.”
GRAIN is a small international non-profit organisation that works to support small farmers and social movements in their struggles for community-controlled and biodiversity-based food systems
Already 56,000 people have pledged to support a global ‘internet seed swap’ initiative promoted by Avaaz,. Trouble is, the plans are deeply flawed, and have been developed without consultation with major seed saving groups worldwide. They also claimed the approval of the famous activist Vandana Shiva, but had to apologize when she said she didn’t approve of it!
Is Avaaz just another NGO trying to make a buck out of others’ misfortune, or is there something more sinister going on? You be the judge.
Mainstream media would have us believe that a popular government has been ousted by the military. Whatever the truth may be, looking at what people do is more important than listening to what they say. Here’s an article by Tony Cartalucci which indicates that what’s happening in Thailand might offer hope for all who want to see the current dominators of the world defeated.and a return to common sense.
An investment branch of the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) aid agency has come under fire for subsidizing Avance Ingenieros to build elite housing projects in El Salvador at the expense of the UK taxpayer, according to an investigation by the Guardian newspaper. This is not an accident or mistake, it’s policy. http://www.corpwatch.org/article.php?id=15954
